  • planetbeing Confirms Working Unlock & Jailbreak on iPhone 4
    A recent twitter update from @planetbeing gives more confidence to hopeful iPhone 4 owners waiting for the unlock from the dev team. Just under an hour ago, planetbeing (David Wang) posted the following messages on his twitter account:



    From the looks of things, the iPhone 4 jailbreak and unlock is stable and working on the iPhone 4. It is still suspected that the dev team are waiting for Apple to release 4.0.1 before making their jailbreak public. We chatted with Wang this morning about the unlock, and he mentioned Apple's definitely catting this mouse (or is it the other way around?):

    Apple has thrown in a few extra tricks targeted specifically at previous unlocks (including blacksn0w and ultrasn0w) in order to mitigate the damage we can do (i.e. unlocking the phone) even if we found a bug. But we got around it. :P
    Although we have no official word on a release date, based on these twitter posts, the team have ironed out most of the creases! Of course this is all still low level stuff - they'll still be streamlining it for simplicity and ease of install.



    We'll be keeping you updated as the situation progresses!

    UPDATE: Another recent tweet, this time from @MuscleNerd sheds more light on the unlock progress:

    MuscleNerd: We think we have 3 different ways to unlock once inside BB (the 3rd way was first to fully work for @planetbeing !)

      Well said jomo25.

      Next step is to find out a date for the 4.0.1 release, set up a gazillion mirrors to download the JB program, and hope for the best...

      I would rather not have to JB then update and wait another few months to get the JB back. I kept my 3G on 3.1.2 JB forever because the 3.1.3 update was nothing I needed. who's to say that the i4 update 4.0.1 doesn't bring something that we need fixed (proximity sensor not antenna) or a new feature?

      apple needs to pick these guys up and hire them and get into apps, and themes and apple can sell these themes.

      If I understand correctly, the JB currently being used by the devs to work on the unlock uses Apple code in it and that makes it illegal to distribute it. If you can figure out how to do it on your own, then go for it, if not, then just let them be and as soon as they have a solution ready that they can distribute, they will do so.

      doubt there will be any new features other than the miscalculated mathematics for signal (yeah right. hoping for a new feature is like the old saying wish in one hand and sh*t in the other. maybe in 4.1 gamecenter,etc... will go live but until then dont hold your breath.

      I wouldn't be so quick to say that. I'm still sorry to see him go. He's a dude I still want on my team. That being said...


      Thank goodness the dev-team is still hard at it, these guys rock!!

      Who even said there was going to be a 4.0.1???
      And Consumer reports said its much more than a software issue (Not that I believe them but they did tear it apart and what not)

      Great news, along with Apple being backed into a corner. All will be unveiled soon I'm guessing...
      Thanks to all involved in making things happen, I don't fully understand hacking and the questions 'How does it all work?' & 'Where do I start?' keep ringing in my mind.

      massive respect!!
